I have created four partitions, running Snow Leopard and Windows 7

With the following config, disk0s5 cannot be read by Windows as a partition.


#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
0: GUID_partition_scheme *750.2 GB disk0
1: EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1
2: Apple_HFS Storage 97.5 GB disk0s2 <----- (Blank HFS+)
3: Apple_HFS Snow Leopard 150.0 GB disk0s3 <----- (Snow Leopard)
4: Microsoft Basic Data BOOTCAMP 250.1 GB disk0s4 <----- (Windows 7)
5: Microsoft Basic Data Storage 249.7 GB disk0s5 <----- (Blank exFat Partition)


If I delete Partition 2, then windows can read it as a formatted drive.

Boot to Windows 7. Run the Disk Management software from the admin tools. Look carefully at each partition including the HFS partitions.

How is Windows 7 identifying them? Does it identify them as "Primary"? If it does, you will be limited to 4 partitions. (Right now you have 5)

Nothing you can do about it as it's a Windows limitation not OS X. You can't really change the partition type to "Logical" without doing major work on the disk and possibly losing Win 7.
